house? for rubio tupac is one small way to differentiate himself. to say i'm not out of the '50s. i'm modern and cool. what tupac is to rubio, rubio is to the gop. he's a human band-aid on a gaping bullet hole. most of his message is not that much different from romney's failed assault on big government, but he's not an older white man so maybe this time it will work. but the gop doesn't understand that voters see through the window dressing. they see through the new face pushing old policies. they see through the tupac loving senator whose anti-gay marriage and pro-life and anti-science and pro gun rights and who voted against the violence again women rights. if pac were alive, he would be battling rubio and the rnc. all right. that does it for requesting the cycle." martin, it's yours. >> you've pumped us up. it's monday, february 18th. president's day and the president is about to return home to washington where republicans are waiting to greet him with a cold shoulder and a wet blanket. >> i'm in palm beach, florida, not far from the president. >> the president of the united sta
rubio and other republicans in an understanding they have to get to comprehensive immigration reform this year. the problem is there's tremendous resistance on the base both to the concept of immigration reform and to the idea of working couldn't tioper with obama. what this does in a way is it allows rubio and allows some of the others who will have to cut a deal with obama or could have to cut a deal with obama to have that moment where, oh, no, this is presidential overreach, this is king obama, we're walking away and it can bring them back and it can in a round about way make it easier to eventually let them sell a compromise to their base. that's the optimistic way of looking at this. >> we're forgetting the greatest nonscandal of all time, benghazi. shouldn't congress xhond that tiger woods and his caddie appear before a committee because he might now know something about benghazi? >> this would be typical of the republicans. as we discussed the other day, this is a party that has lost three out of the last four elections starting with 2006, and at some point they're going to h
